Work is crazy this week what with my boss and the VP off and an implementation hot on my heels so I planned a week off training so I wouldn't stress sessions I couldn't make. Training starts heavy on Saturday morning @ 8:00am with Tawnya, who is apparently so busy doing cardio she has no time to post, haha. 8am, what the hell was I thinking? Anyway 60 minutes of weights with her and I fear a hill sprint or speed sprint or something else vomit inducing. Following that I'll continue with 30 minute run or bike, depending on what equipment is available and Sunday is swim. I set up a killer schedule to get me through the next 13 weeks of training so that I can complete my 5km race on May 15. 5km is really no big deal but for me, it will be a huge accomplishment especially if I can beat the time of my first (and only) one which should be easy considering I shuffled through that one. Still waiting on my OAT membership so I can register for the races but I have the try in June and sprints in July, Aug and Sept. When I asked Tawnya about which sprint I should do, August or Sept she suggested both, and I listened.. I wasn't even drunk.. My credit card is at the ready!
Today I saw some pics of my gym posted by the owners Mindi O'Brien. They have recently renovated and the place is looking super good. Then I saw the step up thingers, the big one that we use for my circuits and I winced a little and my quads cried a bit. I use this facility when working out with Tawnya and I use the "Y" for swimming and bike/run. I'd rather bike/run at CHPC because I prefer their equipment but I have to get used to the "Y" at some point. Hopefully soon.
I saw my massage therapist and she started to strip my shins a bit and we're hoping we can do enough work so that I don't suffer as badly as I did when I was running back in 2008. I hear this shin stripping can get kinda painful, I hope I can knuckle through it because really nothing is worse than shin splints.
That's all I got...
wait, I lied.. I'm going to need lots of support to get me into this schedule so feel free to tweet, email, call, text, heckle me to ensure that I go. Apparently I cave to peer pressure.
NOW that's all
